Little Cinders arrived in our care a few months ago. She was a very shut down and terrified girl.
Whilst in foster she has made enormous strides forward and we feel she is now ready for a very special and understanding home.
Here is what her foster Mom has to say about her...
Cinders is doing great and is up on the bed most mornings for a snuggle and some fuss. She is often offering her belly to be stroked now of an evening when she's on the sofa with me.
Housetraining.... can be hit and miss. If outside is busy, i.e. people in their gardens, she will tend not to go out - if she is in the garden already, then she is a little easier than before. She now is often the last to come indoors as she is having a good sniff about.
Walks..... I have taken her to the secure field and it is the same as I have used for previous fosters. The first time, she was of course nervous and unsure, but actually relaxed as time went on. The second time she was a lot easier. She does worry about the lead if it tightens, so I use a long line. This is to help her gain confidence with being on lead. At the field, as I called the others back (Cinders on long line), to my surprise she followed suit and on another occasion, I called her and she came to me for lots of treats. She loves her food so I think this will help in a new home.
She will struggle in an urban environment - busy streets and so on. So somewhere semi-rural will be ideal.
From the catatonic state she arrived in, she has come such a long way. She is enjoying affection more and more which is lovely
She will need a quiet home with a confident and playful dog, with people who will just let her be and, as she will go backwards at first, she will need patience and people who are accepting that she won't be ready to go on walks for a bit.
Cinders is in foster in Essex
